Opossums (Possums) are North America’s only marsupial. This means, like kangaroos, females have a pouch on their belly where they carry and feed their young.
Mature possums are approximately the size of a house cat at two feet long. They have white to grey fur, hairless tales and weigh in at about ten pounds.
They are mostly nocturnal mammals, omnivorous, excellent climbers and are known to act dead or “play possum” as a defensive measure.
Opossums are a nuisance and threat to homeowners if they take residence in attics or crawl spaces because their large droppings carry various parasites and diseases. They are also known to steal garbage, pet food and harass pets.
